Competition: Serie A
Market: Fiorentina win
Odds: 7/5 @ 888sport
Looking to extend their stay in the European spots on Wednesday evening, Fiorentina will make the trip to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi when they face off against Verona.
Starting with the hosts, while Verona might have thought that they had found a much-needed boost earlier in the campaign, the Gialloblu have largely come crashing back down to earth. Putting in flat display once again over the weekend and hit with a deserved 1-0 defeat away at Torino, Head Coach Igor Tudor has seen his side lose each of their last three contests on the spin. Crashing out of the Coppa Italia last week after suffering a remarkable 4-3 defeat against Empoli on home soil, Verona have really shown a host of issues at the back. With just a single victory to their name over the past month, Wednesday’s hosts should also be concerned by their most recent meeting against the Purples. Suffering a 2-1 loss when they welcomed Fiorentina to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi back in April, Tudor’s men could be in for another tough test.
As for the visitors, although Fiorentina might have been disappointed to have settled for a point against Sassuolo, the mood in their camp should still be at a high. Continuing to impress many across Italy since opening the 2021/22 campaign, the Viola now have their sights firmly set on securing a European return this season. Finding a route into the top-six, Head Coach Vincenzo Italiano finds his side enjoying a five-match Serie A unbeaten run, mustering 13 points. With attacking talisman Dusan Vlahovic enjoying a remarkable free-scoring run, the Purples should be smelling a golden chance before they head into the festive break. Last seen away from the Stadio Artemio Franchi landing an action-packed 3-2 victory against Bologna, we’re backing a similar away win for Italiano’s side in midweek.
